Bicycle Club of Irvine’s Generous Support

Thanks! go out to one of OC’s oldest and most successful clubs, Bicycle Club of Irvine, affectionately known as BCI.

They’d honored your Coalition with a $1,000 donation and a presumptive “At’a Boy” for the work we do. Countless volunteer hours by our Board and supporters were committed to bicyclists throughout the county the past 12 months.

Projects include meetings with Orange County Transportation Authority, service on that agency’s Citizens Advisory Committee, meeting (and riding!) with Caltrans senior staff from the Irvine District 11 office, meetings and consultation with bicycle advisory groups and staff in Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, Irvine, San Clemente, and Fullerton, consultation on projects in Anaheim and Newport Beach.

Behind the scenes we’ve worked to preserve Class 1 trails in the plans for San Juan Capistrano and, of course, Peters Canyon– a political hot potato which we will continue to monitor.

And we recognize Bicycle Club of Irvine for their leadership in training their members in safe and courteous on-road skills. Thank You, BCI.

Camp Pendleton’s Annual Bicyclist Registration to Enter

Update: Due to the volume of registration requests, the Marines are unable to respond, either ‘Yay” or “Nay” to your application. You will get an auto-response when submitting your request, but you’ll only know if you’re cool when you present at the sentry.
———————————————

The need for increased security for Marines, their families, and civilians who live and work on the base has led to a new policy requiring all bicyclists riding through to register at least 7 days in advance of appearing at the gate.

The online registration form is accessed here. It takes approximately one week to process the request. And clearance must be renewed annually.

The base has made Stewart Mesa and Vandergrif roads available as an alternative to the I-5 freeway for about 40 years. Annual registration allows the USMC to extend this courtesy to bicyclists and achieve a higher level of safety for the base at the same time.

The I-5 is still available to bicyclists 24/7 between Harbor Dr. and Las Pulgas Rd. Bicyclists who are not preregistered will be expected to use the freeway.
